I attempted to install WordPress using the Microsoft Web Platform Installer. Everything seemed fine until the end of the installation. I then got a message saying:
The following error occurred when trying to connect to the database by using the specified parameters: Access denied for user 'kbdci'@'localhost' (using password: YES) Continue with install anyway?
I responded by clicking the YES button. I then received the following message:
X We're sorry. The following products have failed to install.
This product did not install successfully: The database 'wordpress' could not be created. Access denied for user 'kbdci'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
The following products were successfully installed.
Web Deployment Tool 1.1
URL Rewrite 2.0
Windows Cache Extension 1.1 for PHP 5.2
MySQL Windows Essential 5.1
Can you help me find a solution so that I can use WordPress on my local Windows 7 PC for testing and development before I try it at my website?
